This is a very simple recipe to prepare.
Place stick of butter in a 9-1/2" x 11" baking dish and place in a preheated 350°F oven.
Adapted from Nathalie Dupree's "New Southern Cooking"
Serves 6 - 8
1/2 cup butter
1 cup all purpose flour, preferably soft-wheat
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
2 cups peaches, peeled and sliced, juices reserved
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Put the butter in a 9-by-13-inch ovenproof serving dish and place in the oven to melt.
Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and stir in the milk and sugar to make a batter. Remove the hot dish with the melted butter from the oven and pour in the batter. Spoon the peaches and then the peaches over the batter. Place the dish back in the oven and bake until the batter is browned and has risen up and around the fruit, about 30 minutes.
